    I have the Dell Streak 5 2.2 which no longer has that Sim card manager. I have all my phone contacts on my Sim card. The manual says that I can only add photos to contacts that are stored on the phone's memory. How do I transfer Sim contacts to the phone. I have already "exported" the Sim data to the SD card, but the phone still only recognizes the Sim contacts. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Not sure if your phone will but on mine -
    Go to add contacts screen ( the one that also lists) then menu/ more / import / from sd - and choose file they r in.

    Don't know what's wrong with your phone but my Streak has the option in contacts to import from SIM and/or SD card

    It is better to have them as google accounts, because they are then automatically backed up. I also find them easier to manage.

    If you have them as phone accounts and then anything happens to your phone, like losing it, then your contacts are gone.

    There's an app on the market called 'Phone Contact Transfer' It will put all of your contacts from phone to phone directly.
